I Can’t Resist

This is one project you can’t do in a library. But it’s too brilliant not to share. If you’re doing a Peeps-related program (and there was a megalong list of ideas in PUBYAC Digest Volume 13, Issue 150), this might be fun to make ahead of time or to share with teens.

Now for some crafts you can do in the library. For lack of any better ideas before we had to set our schedule, my National Library Week teen craft is shrink art.

shrink art Sorry for the bad picture. The design is from Treasury of Chinese Design Motifs. As I said before, I have no artistic ability. Teens may be able to come up with a picture freehand; I need Dover Pictorial Archives.

As for upcoming crafts, I’m going to try out a couple of ideas from CraftyPod. Hopefully I can use at least one in a program. First, an envelope accordion book.

Instructions and the first sample from Paper Source, the second a sample from CraftyPod. Other projects I’ll be trying out are this letter presentation card and matchbook notepad.
